If you are considering a Montessori school in the Jacksonville NC area, THIS is the one to go to! My son has been going to this wonderful school for 3 years and has absolutely flourished both socially and mentally. Knowing that he goes to a school where the lessons are child-centered, not teacher-centered, and individualized and tailored to how he learns is comforting as a parent. This Montessori school has taught my child to be independent, respectful, thoughtful, and observant. We are so pleased that he is guided to use critical thinking instead of just memorizing lessons. I would recommend this school to anybody looking for an alternative to a traditional classroom! The tour alone will give any prospective family great insight into the powerful Montessori philosophy.One look around and you notice the quiet buzzing of children diligently working and learning in a carefully prepared environment.We look forward to many more years here at the school and continuing to sing its praises! We are so lucky to have this Montessori gem in Jacksonville, NC.

The fact that my children can advance at the own level is the reason we love our Montessori. The staff is fantastic and really show an interest in not only the children's individual needs but they take great pride in their school. I would recommend this school to any parent.

We are so happy we found this school! We intend on staying in the area just so our children can attend this school up to 6th grade!

Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
This article aims to show you where to look for information about school reopening protocols, school reopening communications, schools that have closed, and schools with COVID-19 cases, among other COVID-19 related issues.
